    Hi Folks,

     

    Some time ago, I did see that Cura showed jpg files (I'll sometimes store picture files together with stl's).

    At that time I learned that the black part of the pictures become higher parts in the frame and white color the lowest parts.

    From above this look some nice -but also kind of strange. I've been thinking about using "old black and withe" film to see how this will be looking using Cura.

    So, light intensity is controlling how deep your print will be..

     

    Interesting thing this..

     

    Thanks

    Torgeir

    When you import an image in cura you can define if the black is the higher or the lower.  Normaly if it's to create a Lithophane;  dark part must the higher ( default setting)  because if you want a dark area you need to have as much as material as possible.
